    verb suit

    Hello

    I'd like to have a question?. I am not sure if I can use this verb in these situations:

    1. The job involves duties that suit me.
    2. Do the duties suit you at this job?
    3. The word here doesn't suit here. Try another one.

    (if the word does not suit(?) here which shall I use then?)

    also

    How to say that I am an electrical technician and I would like to take up a career in this field? Can I just say:
    1. I am interested in computer hardware. The duties suit me and I would like to enhance my knowledge and experience in this field. I would like to go into this direction (i.e electrical subject and work in this field).

    Please correct me
    thank you

    Re: verb suit

    1) Fine - correct usage
    2) Fine (or: Do the duties of this job suit you?)
    3) You can use the adjective 'appropriate' (The word is not appropriate here.) or its opposite - 'inappropriate'

    Use 'in this direction' not 'into this direction'
